EXCEEDED EVERY EXPECTATION:"This is a small hotel and we felt very welcomed. You will not find a better private view of Florence. This villa would be worth staying at even if it did not enjoy such a privileged view of Florence. I have been to Florence many times and have never felt so strongly about any hotel there." (Tripadvisor - December 2011)

31st ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION IN FLORENCE: "The hotel site a top Michelangelo's hill afforded an absolutely stunning view of Florence. We began each day with a view of the Duomo from the terrace at breakfast and ended each night with the same view of Florence lit up at night. We were also encouraged to climb to the roof of the hotel where we could have an even more spectacular view." (Tripadvisor -October 2011)
